    The Magic of Colour Mixing

    Master Modern Colour Theory using Watercolour with Natalie Martin

    • Beginner - Intermediate Level 
    • Suitable for ages 10+
    • Self-paced learning
    • Lifetime Access
    • Beautifully filmed in HD

    Hi! I’m Nat Martin, a watercolour artist from Victoria, Australia. I’ve been captivated by this medium for as long as I can remember and while teaching is a more recent thing, there’s nothing more rewarding than helping someone explore or reconnect with their creative side.

    This new course, The Magic of Colour Mixing follows on from Welcome to Watercolour and is for budding and established artists alike. In it, we’ll go deep into modern colour theory and together, we’ll build up your skills and confidence so you too can create works bursting with life and begin to develop your own language with colour.

    The course also covers why it’s important to understand colour and how colour affects the mood, temperature and energy of your work. You’ll paint your own colour mixing wheel, learn about colour reference charts, how to create beautiful neutrals and earthy colours, AND, why you keep accidentally making brown (!)

    Colour is such a huge part of my own work, I love using vibrant, high energy watercolour and I’m so looking forward to seeing the magic you create with your finished piece.

    What to expect:


    9 videos shot in High Definition with an overall run time of 120 minutes. The beauty of a self paced online course is that you work through this course to pause and practice before proceeding onto the next stages.

    Outcomes:


    A comprehensive understanding of colour theory

    An understanding of watercolour as a medium and other necessary materials 

    A final project - a botanical watercolour painting

    The Magic of Colour Mixing E-Book


    Now included in your enrolment is a downloadable 51 page E-Book (available on Teachable only). Brimming with hot tips, key takeaways and extension projects to further your watercolour fun. This is your companion guide for the course, something to reference when you are practicing and playing at home. The basic course notes have had a MAJOR glow up.

    What you'll need:


    If you have previously purchased the watercolour discs then you are welcome to use these, however I demonstrate the colour mixing using three tube paints, the three primary colours. I go into greater detail on materials required in the second video of the course. Here's the basics:

    • Watercolour paints
    • Round brushes - size 10 and 4
    • Watercolour paper
    • Pencil and eraser
    • Two water jars
    • Palette (an old plate will do)
    • Paper towel
    • Surface to work on
    • Computer, laptop or phone

    I have put together a colour mixing kit that includes the three tubes of paint, paper and some templates to practice on. Available below.

    Excellent course - I learned a lot.

    I really enjoyed this course. The activities were interesting, fun and engaging and very useful in improving my knowledge of colour. I am now much more confident in mixing colours and how to get the results I want to achieve. Well presented and easy to understand. Loved it!

    Thanks for your lovely review Carolyne! Colour is just so fascinating - glad to hear you got lots out of the course. Natalie

    I can't tell you how good this class is. It is by far the easiest to understand for colour theory in my opinion. The quality of the class recording is spectacular. Overall a terrific class with a great teacher.

    Amazing best explanation of colour I have ever see or heard. In fact I think you need to watch in more than once as there is so much to learn from this.
